A Marana road shut down could delay nightly weekend driving

MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Marana drivers need to plan for alternate travel routes, as a portion Ina Road will shut down east of I-10 Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Arizona Department of Transportation will close Ina Road between the Union Pacific Railroad Tracks and Camino De Oeste starting at 9 p.m. on Friday. This will reopen at about 5 a.m. Saturday. The road will close again on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Drivers can try Orange Grove Road or Cortaro Road to avoid this construction. Neither ramps will be affected, nor will any part of Ina west of the interstate.

The area is closing for utility and survey work, in preparation for the future Ina Road traffic interchange reconstruction project, which is slated to start around 2016, according to ADOT.

When this long term project is finished, Ina Road will theoretically pass over the interstate, not unlike Prince Road. Workers will not only have to focus on Ina Road, but they will also need to reconstruct frontage roads and ramps in the area.

This is projected to cost about $86 million.

For more information, email projects@azdot.gov or call the ADOT project hotline at (855)712-8530.
